Porsche is adding another version of Macan to cars for sale in Dubai and we’re really excited. The 2020 Macan GTS fills the gap between the Macan S and Macan Turbo. This isn’t the first time Porsche is offering this variant but this time it comes with revamped interior, upgraded powertrain and a better outlook.
Engine and performance
After the return of the Macan Turbo last year, this is another amazing addition to the Porsche family. And in case you were wondering, Porsche has already said that this model completes the Macan range, so don’t wait for more variants.
The Macan GTS is underpinned by a 2.9-liter V6 engine that churns out 375 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated with a PDK dual-clutch gearbox and the automaker claims that the car can go from a standstill to 60 miles per hour in only 4.5 seconds with the Sport Chrono package and 4.7 seconds without it. The ride offers a top speed of 162 mph.
Standard features that you will get include the adjustable air suspension, a sport exhaust, 20-inch RS Spyder Design wheels, and cast iron brakes. Surface Coated Brakes and Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes are also available as an option.
The base model has EPA ratings of 19 mpg (city) and 23 mpg (highway). Standard safety features include lane-departure warning, automated emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control.
Exterior and interior
With the standard Sport Design package, the Macan GTS comes with new front and rear trim along with slide skirts. Like the other GTS variants from the company, this one also features black accents. Darkened Porsche Dynamic Light System(PDLS) is employed in the LED headlights and taillights as standard. Auto-dimming mirrors and adaptive headlights are optional with a Premium upgrade.
Alcantara has been used for the center console, seat center panels, door panels, and armrest. The sporty look of the interior has also been complimented by brush aluminum. The Macan GTS also gets exclusive sports seats with visible side bolsters and eight-way adjustability. A leather-wrapped steering wheel is also standard. With all that going on, a little more space for the back-seat passengers would have been a great plus point.
Inside is a 10.9-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a 10-speaker audio system. With the Premium package, you also get heated front and rear seats, a better 14-speaker audio system, and Apple CarPlay. With the Sport Chrono package you also get the launch-control feature and driver-adjustable drive modes.
Other features include the Bose audio system and wireless charging. The cabin is dotted with USB ports and 12-volt outlets, which means both the driver and passengers will have no problem juicing up their devices.
You will be able to get your hands on the Macan GTS this summer if you reside in the U.S. The price starts at $72,650 and can go up if you need customizations and add-ons. Macan is already on the list of the best SUVs in Dubai and we can’t wait to see how this model plays out with Porsche fans.
It remains to be seen when this sporty SUV will be available among cars for sale in Dubai. It might take some time to see it in the UAE, but till then CarSwitch.com has you covered with a variety of makes and models!
